Details

JS components should not have their loader's mimetype hardcoded. The exact same
JS component source should work whether loaded from a 'js from file system'
loader, or 'js from jarfile loader', or 'js from wherever' loader. The JS code
should be able to discover this from some clue provided into its
runtime enviroment by the loader that loaded it at install time.
Status: NEW → ASSIGNED
Target Milestone: M11
We need to add the component type to the nsIModule::RegisterSelf API, so other
loader types don't need to reinvent this particular wheel.

I'll do it tonight, so we don't have to adjust those millions of JS components
that people are going to write tomorrow (cough), and so I only have to retrofit
the GIF stuff.

Component type added to nsIModule::registerSelf, so we're done here.
